With the new home health conditions of participation (CoPs), home health agencies need to be keenly aware of what sanctions can be imposed as a result of an adverse survey. And you need to do that without interpretive guidance from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). The agency has a wealth of remedies at its disposal—including civil monetary penalties and suspension of payment—that you’ll want to avoid.
In this instructive session, industry veteran Todd Selby will teach you how to do that by exploring the range of penalties that CMS can impose on home health agencies, with a detailed explanation of intermediate sanctions. In addition to helping you proactively avoid sanctions before and during the survey process, Selby will also show you how to play defense after the fact if faced with sanctions. He will address how to challenge the intermediate sanctions—both informally and formally—through the appeals process afforded home health agencies by CMS.
After attending this program, you will better understand the penalties you face—not only intermediate sanction types, but also how, when, and why CMS imposes sanctions. You will also know how to challenge intermediate sanctions prior, during, and after a survey. Don’t miss this opportunity to add an important tool to your home health agency’s CoP management & compliance toolkit.
